If you are planning to Elope in Mexico, we recommend that you consider a few options.

Choose one of our private cenote locations that is basically the “Cathedral of the earth”.   These are natural sinkholes or underground rivers that the ancient civilization of the Mayans considered the cenotes portals to their gods and a way to the heavens.   The locations are known for their epic natural beauty, peaceful and romantic connection to the earth, as well as cultural significance to the locals and the Mayans who first lived in these regions.

We also recommend researching private villas or finding locations that represent you as a couple or the small group of family and friends attending.  Villas can offer many amenities and details that you can’t get in a hotel.  Mainly, privacy and intimacy will be some of the factors to consider when booking all-inclusive vs a boutique villa or private home.   We are happy to make recommendations as to location.

We recommend booking a location between Playa del Carmen and Tulum Mexico.  Please, consult with us so we can go over the plan, and details, and let us explain the significance of a Del Sol Photography cosmic ceremony.

  •  You both embrace the ability to design an experience that is more personal to the couple and unique for the relationship.
  •  You can choose a location in the natural world that has a special meaning to each other vs something more traditional, like a church or a ballroom, specifically in nature.
  • Eloping generates a huge cost savings.  Average weddings of 50+ guests in the USA have cost upwards of 30K USD or more, depending on so many other factors and eloping in Mexico can reduce costs and keep you out of debt.
